This gramophone works by turning the crank handle, that winds the motor, that turns the turntable.  There is also a speed adjustment dial. This gramophone only plays the old thick 78 RPM records.    The sound from this gramophone does not sound anywhere near the sound of a phonograph. The wood base at the bottom is 14 3/4" X 14 3/4" and the top part of the base with the turntable is 12 3/4" X 12 3/4".  The base to the top of the horn is 25"
